via Cambodianess, 12 November 2020: An interview with Cambodian anthropologist Ang Choulean on his latest book about the Rural Cuisine of Angkor.
The food of the people says a lot about their culture. Humankind’s history has centered around food, as well as the way it is produced, cooked, decorated, served and stored.

Thmey Thmey’s Ky Soklim caught up with Anthropologist Professor Ang Choulean, where they discussed the latter’s latest book—“The Rural Cuisine of Angkor” and how, in his almost 30 years of anthropology, Choulean has seen Cambodian food change.
